Well – it’s back.
Monday, that is! Bleh!
Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week.
Don’t suppose it really matters if you’re NOT ready, cuz…
Yep. It’s gonna happen!
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video – thanks for spending part of your weekend with me! We had a good time, I think! If you weren’t able to be with us, but would like to see how to make today’s Fun Fold, here’s the link to the Memorex version on YouTube!
The Peekaboo fun fold is kind of all over Pinterest and YouTube right now – lots of videos to watch. Which I did! And then I made my own!
I’ve actually made two now, both with the new Cauldron Bubble stamp set and some fun DSP from the Toil & Trouble DSP in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. Take a look-see.
This is the one I gave you the sneak peek of yesterday morning – all Black and Highland Heather and Smoky Slate!
Then I changed up the DSP and the color scheme in the video.
For both of them – I did some tone-on-tone stamping on the front with the cat or ghost image from Cauldron Bubble – Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie or Highland Heather on Highland Heather!
This kind of card is a lot easier to ‘splain in a video (which I do!) – so I’ll just share a few more pictures – and the card cuts are all down below!
I used the new and oh-so-cool Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and some Black Foil on both cards, as well as the adorable (and not even a little bit scary!) Spider Trinkets!
You can see that the layout is the same…
…as is the technique to make the mechanism work!
As usual, I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelopes with images that coordinate with my cards…
…and I added the matching Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flaps!
Et Voila! So – this is SUCH a fun card – with a surprise for your recipient when they open it up! And – since it’s really pretty easy to make – you NEED to do one for yourself! The video shows you how to “make the cake” – and I’ve used Halloween themed images from Cauldron Bubble and the Toil & Trouble DSP to “decorate the cake”. But – you can make your cake and decorate it however you like – Thanksgiving! Christmas! Just-cuz-it’s Tuesday!! Have fun with it. Hope you like!

We cut and chopped shares this weekend!
The men in my life (well…two of the four men in my life!) dealt with the work quite…differently.
Guess which one is going to Greece with me next year?!?
